Dead on arrival

  • Summary: Well, this router was dead on arrival. I spent almost an hour on the phone with their tech support (after waiting 40 minutes on hold to speak to someone), only to find out it was broken.

Complicated, but it works

  • Excerpt: I needed to update the firmware before I could use my Sprint 4G card but once I did it worked like magic. This is definitely not a tool for a beginner setting up a network.
  • Pros: Small

Don't Buy

Tom, Amazon
23 January 2011
  • Summary: This 3G router is JUNK. Worked with much effort for 2 weeks then would not recognize ATT aircard modem. Software quit working also. No help file and no contact for support...buy a name brand modem...mistake I made. I don't usually review products as a very loyal Amazon fan but this one takes the cake. Advertised as Aluatek but I received a Zalip...whatever that is!

  • Summary: This router works really well but the instructions are awful. After spending too many hours trying to figure out how to set it up I called customer service and within 5 minutes it was working.

For Expert Wirless Networkers Only.

Intermediate Networker, B&H Photo
18 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The directions are a joke. I spent 5 hours trying to figure out how to get the router installed. I finally tossed the directions and read through the instructions on the enclosed CD. Those directions were pretty awful too; however, I figured out what the IP address needed to be set to and finally got the thing installed... Of course, I still can't use it cause even though it shows that I have an internet connection, I cannot pull up any web sites.
  • Pros: Small
  • Cons: Hard to Set up
